What does a Pappa Smudge do when he's not allowed to dive?

I still get wet Very Happy

As I am still not allowed to dive after my operation a few weeks ago - it's not stopping me getting wet! This weekend I headed to a river in the dales to do a little bit of canoeing by myself.

The River Washburn is a controlled river release from Thurcross Reservoir. About 30 time a year the flood gates are opened to allow canoest to paddle the flooded river for a few hours. The car park resembles the likes of Capernwray, but instead of of Scuba gear there is just lots of people in rubber and plastic boats! Fantastic fun, and I now have bruises in places that I didn't even know could bruise.

The left images below show the river before being flooded - the other two from the same place when flooded!

Thanks for reading what i've been up - why not tell people of your adventures

Nice pics, are you allowed to do it in Scuba Gear (so incompetents can do it without fear of rolling upside down) ?

I think I can just see the top of you head poking through on the second pic, hope the kayak didn't hit you.

Hi Smudge, how are you doing. I did my open water with you a couple of years ago. I am living (and working) in Mauritius and I have recently got my mask on and started getting back in the drink, i just completed my advanced open water. It is a terrible place to go diving here but i guess someone has to do it. I had a look at your website and i am very impressed, keep up the good work and I will come join you on some of your expeditions, if i ever come back!! I thought my name would have come up, in case it doesnt, i Dale Greenwood

Take care mate and all the best
